“Angela, hear me out. It’ll only take a minute. I read the same books as you, I listen to the same music, and I go to the same movies so when I tell you how I feel it is not just words.”
— Shawn Hunter, Boy Meets World (via sophiaphile)

You don’t know it, but

Sometimes, I go to a hill that overlooks
the landscape’s mask of city lights
For a sip of momentary grace.
On this brink of everything I know, I can gain
An eyeful of the lost Atlantis in the human soul,
And a breath that fills my lungs with the air between two stars.

If right now, you
Were to capture this elation
In the framework of your mind,
Or find transcendence through these words,
Then at most you would know
Nothing
Of the beauty your existence throws to me.
For mine is a love no experience,
No thought, no measure, no words
Could ever degrade into reality by virtue of degree.

— By Rider Strong (via clarinetgirl16)
“She scares the hell out of me and calms my soul at the same time. Maybe that’s what love is—a total contradiction that somehow balances out.”
— Tammara Webber, Where You Are (via quotethat)
“You are so used to your features, you don’t know how beautiful you look to a stranger.”

Your life
is worth
more
than gold
and your
flesh
is pure
and soft
like snow.

Don’t throw
it all away
into a stranger’s
clumsy hands
and unworthy
heart just
because you
are too afraid
of being alone.
